SAMPLE INFO : 54-Sn-284A
Sample ID:54-Sn-284A
Station ID:54-Sn-284A
Latitude:53.88707
Longitude:-166.93202
Datum:NAD83
Date Sampled:1954-01-01
Sample Type 1:Countryrock
Sample Type 2:Enclave/Inclusion
Field Lithology:Granitic
Text Description:
Recrystallized wallrock, equivalent to syenodiorite in composition, from a beach boulder at the southeast end of the north arm of Skan Bay: it occurs as an inclusion in granite. The texture is hypidiomorphic-granular. Felsic minerals compose 76-80 percent of the rock: 2-3 percent quartz, 5-10 percent orthoclase partially altered to kaolin (1-2 percent), and 65-70 percent plagioclase partially altered to sericite (2-3 percent) and clinozoisite (0.1 percent). The plagioclase composition, by extinction angle, is An35 (mean of 10 crystals, standard deviation is 6 percent An, average amount of zoning per individual plagioclase crystal is 11 percent An per crystal). Mafic minerals compose 20-25 percent: 10-14 percent hornblende (much is interstitial), 5-10 percent biotite partially altered to epidote (0.1-0.5 percent) and penninite (0.1-1 percent), 1-3 percent magnetite, 0.1-1 percent sphene (associated with the magnetite) partially altered to leucoxene (0.1-0.5 percent), one large grain of tourmaline (about 0.3 percent), and <0.01 percent hematite.
